Gabriel Magalhaes

Arsenal fans breathed a sigh of relief when Gabriel Magalhaes, affectionately known as Gabriel, was subbed off due to a knock while representing Brazil against Bolivia.

However, the 25-year-old defender was back in full training with his international teammates on Sunday, suggesting that his injury is not as serious as initially feared.

Gabriel is likely to be available for Arsenal when they take on Everton at Goodison Park this weekend. His presence will be crucial as the Gunners look ahead to challenging fixtures against PSV and Tottenham.

Thomas Partey

Unfortunately, Arsenal will have to make do without the services of Thomas Partey for the foreseeable future. The Ghanaian midfielder remains sidelined due to a groin injury.

This setback forced him to miss Arsenal’s victory over Manchester United before the international break, and he is expected to remain on the treatment table for several more weeks.

Speaking about Partey’s injury, Arteta expressed his concerns: “Unfortunately, he got an injury in training, and it doesn’t look good. We need some more tests, but we believe he’s going to be out for weeks. We think it’s a groin but can be something in between.”

Potential return date: October

Mohamed Elneny

Mohamed Elneny, despite experiencing a reduction in his role over the past couple of seasons, remains a valuable part of Arsenal’s first-team squad.

Timber showcased his potential during pre-season, and fans will be eager to see him return to peak condition and make an impact once he’s back in action.
